Beautiful Skin With A Bonus!

As I mentioned on my last post there were several new products which debuted during the Spring Trend Show that I want to share … and several that I purchased that I am already in love with.

Karen and I both love Dior’s Capture Totale DreamSkin Perfect Skin Creator.  It’s that little something ‘extra’ we add between our moisturizer and makeup.  Much like a primer, but it is light and brightens your skin too and makes for a ‘perfect’ poreless canvas.  We had booked our makeup session with Dior following the show so we were looking forward to seeing what’s new with Dior. And I found it!

Capture Totale Dream Skin Cushion.  Yes, it has the Dream Skin addition to the foundation, but this cushion foundation promises to refine skin texture, reduce spots, redness, and smooth, and firm the skin. It is lightweight but long lasting and protects the skin with an SPF50.  And surprise! this cushion comes with a bonus refill!

This is a light, buildable foundation, but for complete coverage I apply a small amount of my foundation and then press the cushion over it. The formula is so hydrating it makes my complexion appear more plump and dewy.  It also controls oil and shine, so it will work well with summer coming especially in warm weather climates such as Texas. But, if you prefer a no look foundation, this works too.  It’s my ‘go to’ look for the weekends or days I just only want to remove the shine and look like I’m makeupless.

As I mentioned… the compact foundation comes with its own applicator which can be turned over and used when the refill is inserted. I love this new product and it is just in time for summer.

And here’s another bonus – but you must act FAST!

Tomorrow, Saturday, May 27 is Mascara Madness at Nordstrom.  That’s when we can stock up on our favorites or try new ones.  Mascara Madness – Buy 2 mascaras and get one free!  Tomorrow only.  IF YOU ARE IN TEXAS you can call or text my favorite Beauty Consultant, Lauren Cave, at 817-948-6523 and order your mascara.  Nordstrom will ship it to you!  Tomorrow ONLY! Tell her you read this on Wrinkle Me Not and she will take care of you! Are you smiling now?  Hope so!

Flutter Those Eyes…

Have you ever noticed that cosmetics rarely (if ever) go on sale? Get ready for Mascara Madness … it’s a huge deal in the beauty world and happens at Nordstrom every year. This is the one sale where customers can buy 2 mascaras and get one for FREE. The best part is that you can mix and match mascaras, which allows you to try different brands or stock up on your favorites!  

This year’s event will be on May 24th and they have already begun to take pre-orders at the store. I made mine today!

If you have never attended this event here’s how it works. Nordstrom allows its shoppers to purchase (in store and online) two mascaras and then receive a third mascara for free. Just remember the lowest priced mascara will be the freebie so keep that in mind while shopping. When you pre-order for the promotion, you are guaranteed your mascaras and you will not be billed for them until a day or two before the event.  If you decide to wait and make a purchase on the day of the event,  quantities will be limited, of course, and your favorite brand might already be sold out. The same applies for making a purchase online as well.  Also, online purchases will only apply to select brands, while in-store and pre-orders will apply to all cosmetic brands.

My all time favorite mascara is Diorshow by Christian Dior.  They have several varieties to choose from but I love a ‘big show’ mascara with lots of volume and this one is it for me.  It has been a winner of Allure magazine’s ‘Best of Beauty Reader’s Choice’ award for Best Department Mascara for several years, too. The end result is my lashes are lengthened, thickened and curved to the ‘nth’ degree. For a little ‘pop’ after you line your eye, use the mascara of choice, then go back and add a little more liner and some more mascara. You can get some dynamic results that look great for evening or perhaps it’s that special lunch date? Wink! Wink!

 ….And a little FYI: When left unopened mascaras have a shelf life of 2 years!
